Recipe - Chicken Salad

This chicken salad originated quite a long time ago when I was just a wee child sampling foods from Costco. They had the Kirkland Signature (what DON’T they make?) Chicken Breast mixed with mayo on crackers. It was simple and delicious. Once I got to college, I thought about how much I loved the stuff and how fantastic it would be in chicken salad format so here was the result! I make this a lot and store it for quick chicken salad sandwiches when I’m on the go.

The pictures included in this post are actually for a larger portion made for my family but I will post as if you were making it for yourself =D.

Step 1: Ingredients (serving size: varies by your usage)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • dried basil (to taste)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 dill pickle, diced (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can (12.5 oz) Kirkland Signature Chicken Breast, drained
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise (or to taste)
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
       Ingredient notes:
  1. Garlic - Garlic powder can be a substitute if you don't have fresh garlic.

Step 2: Preparing the ingredients
Dice up and mince your veggies! Open the can of chicken and drain it. Sometimes I like to save this water to cook with my rice for a little bit of flavor.

Step 3: Mixing and completion
Mix all the ingredients with a fork. Make sure to mash the meat up finely with the fork; it should separate quite easily.
